Thinking Blogger

Many thanks to the wonderful, and incredibly strong, Emily Elizabeth for the nomination.

The Thinking Blogger Award rules here.
    I am flattered.
    And am embarrassed to admit that lately I haven't sought out blogs that make me think. In fact, quite the opposite is true. I've been keeping up with very few blogs, and those I have been reading have been more of an occasional "I wonder how my friends are doing" sort of read than a search for thought-provoking writing.
    My time, my brain, my new baby, my marriage . . .
    While even my "I wonder how my friends are doing" reads often challenge me to think, I'm just nominating one blogger today, because her blog really stands alone in terms of the way it stretches me, challenges me, and leaves me with much to mull over for days and weeks after I've read her.

    1. Oh, Wow! Thanks so, so much Sarahlynn!

      I love your writing too, but I have to confess that I often visit Houdini because the kiddo pics make me happy. I nominated some blogs for this award recently too -- all blogs that include disability issues. That's here, for anyone interested.

      There sometimes seems to be a lot of tensions between disabled folks and parents of disabled folks in what policy issues concern them or how to approach social problems related to disability stuff, partly, I think, because the experiences of the two groups -- while complementary -- are really not the same. So, I really do appreciate knowing that what I write (and link to, lots of my posting is linkage to other people's good stuff in disguise) makes a connection for you.


    2. Steve and I will second your nomination!

    3. I definitely 'third' your nomination.

      I get so much from reading you, too. Your blog has taught me more about loving life and living in the moment than I can even begin to tell you.
